The Duchess of Cornwall visited the Royal Academy of Arts in London on Monday to help launch the RA250 Friends membership scheme, and she brought some major glitter along with her.

Here you can just see that she also wore a pair of matching earrings, which were mostly obscured by her hair.

Camilla has had this suite of jewels in her collection for years. Above, she wears the necklace for a reception at Clarence House in 2003.

She also wore her wedding and engagement rings, plus a bangle on her left wrist...

Here's a look at her entire ensemble, which included a gorgeous embroidered skirt. Fun fact: the girl who presented Camilla's bouquet is Oriel Milton, the great-granddaughter of Sir Hugh Casson. Sir Hugh was a famous British designer, architect, and artist. He was the director of architecture for the 1951 Festival of Britain, and he also taught Camilla's husband, the Prince of Wales, how to paint with watercolors.
